for ratification of a united nations treaty on the rights of the disabled, which was modeled on a law passed by the senate. 22 years ago, the americans with disabilities act. in effect, it was a vote to export american law to the 155 nations around the world that have signed this treaty. a treaty that has already been ratified by 126 of those countries, including the united kingdom, france, germany, china, russia has ratified it. now you can pass anything in the senate with 60 votes. except treaties which require 66. a two-thirds majority. every democrat voted for the treaty and only eight republicans voted for the treaty. 38 republicans disgraced themselves and disgraced the senate. by voting against it and controlling the outcome. john kerry tried everything he could on the senate floor to show republicans the way to vote for this treaty. >> it really isn't controversial. what this treaty says is very simple. it just says that you can't discriminate against the disabled. it says that other countries have to do what we did 22 years ago when we set the example for the world and passed the am

, quote, genuinely conflicted over whether to pick kerry or united nations ambassador susan rice. president obama said yesterday that republican attacks against susan rice will not influence his decision. jo ari, what do you make of the chuck hagel situation with his name floating into the mix now? >> i thinkรง it's a good faith efforts to take in a wide range of views. we know that president obama in his first term, obviously, went with secretary gates despite his ties to republican foreign policy. hagel is more of a progressive voice, but i'm not sure that a second-term obama presidency reaches back to another republican defense figure. >> and as to the john kerry/susan rice dilemma that the president faces, he says that the attacks on susan rice won't affect his decision one way or another. it won't force his hand to nominate her, and it won't affect his decision to go with senator kerry, if that's what he chooses to do. is he going to be able to incredibly present his choice as his real first choice under these circumstances? >> well, that's the problem with this town, right

for me. and it is critically important. i don't think republicans will win another national election unless conservatives convince the united states that it will work. >> oh, yeah, he is going to be in that powerful position currently held by -- um, let me no, i got it. no, um, okay. well, the current head of the heritage foundation, i'm sure, no, it is a powerful position so i must, okay no. like everyone in america that doesn't work there. i have no idea i have no idea who the current head is. but i know there has never been a member of the uts senate who is less powerful than the head of the foundation. what is behind the lie that he just told about leaving the senate for the more powerful job of running the foundation? the washington post reports that his estimated wellalth in 2010 s $40,000 and the compensation package for the head of the heritage foundation was more than $1 million. there are senators who owe their seats to the political madness to him. the case can be made that no senator did more to keep the democrats in the majority in the sena senate than jim demint. they m

tonight, the aftermath of election 2012. today when the president of the united states was getting briefed by the cia on every known threat in the world, then meeting with the prime minister, then delivering a speech on armts control at the national defense, mitt romney was rejoining the board of marriott international, a hotel chain that is much better managed than mitt romney's presidential campaign. in an article that should have been titled "mitt romney is human after all," "the washington post" reports today that, quote, romney's rapid retreat into seclusion has been marked by repressed emotions, second guessing and perhaps the first time in the over achiever's adult life, sustained boredom. the romney model of don't stop running after your first attempts to get the republican nomination may now be being followed by text kas governor rick perry, who according to politico has been meeting with rig bon nors and is leaving the impression that he is ready to run again. politico has said that governors jindal of louisiana, case sich of ohio and mcdonnell of virginia ventured over to the ve
